...making good on my threat.

We are making plans to host Wineconf 2004,
in St. Paul, MN, during January 2004.

This is the last chance for someone in Europe to volunteer
to organize it in their neck of the woods...

Otherwise, we plan to provide:
  * A meeting space for 2 days
  * Arrangements for moderately price hotel rooms
  * Advice on transportation, which should be straightforward
  * A meal or two, and drinks for at least one evening
  * We'll have all CodeWeavers Wine hackers in town for the event
  * Free buttons for  the St. Paul Winter Carnival:
What we will expect you to provide:
  * Your airfare (sorry, no IPO money for us)
  * Your hotel room
  * A laptop with wireless
  * Long underwear and Parkas

What I don't know yet:
  * We may need to charge some sort of modest fee,
    depending on how the budget and our bank account
    look.  We're willing to shoulder some costs,
    but we may need extra help.  We'll also plan on 
    using the Wine party fund to help cover some costs.
  * Exact dates; my thinking is to do it in conjunction
    with a weekend (e.g.  Fri/Sat or Sun/Mon), but
    I want to see what meeting space cost/availability
    looks like before I pick.  Right now, Fri Jan 16th/
    Sat Jan 17th are looking good (note that LinuxWorld NY
    is the following week for those that might be able
    to get their employer to sponsor the trip Stateside).

Thoughts?  Comments?  

If you think you would come, please email me privately;
I'd like to get a rough count to help with planning.
